Remove Staff Indent

Postby atkayma » Sun Nov 15, 2009 7:07 pm

I wish to remove the indent and make all the staves be the same distance from the edge of the page. I've been digging through the ToC and index and not coming up with solutions. Please help! Thank you. I'm using Finale 2005.

Page Layout Tool.
When you switch to the Page Layout Tool, you will automatically switch to Page View, if you aren't there already.

When you are in the Page Layout Tool, all systems display their system margins as dotted lines.

Select the first system, by clicking inside its system margins.

Page Layout menu > Systems > Edit Margins...
(or go faster via the context menu)

In the dialog box Edit System Margins, set the first system's Left margin to zero, click "Apply", and close the dialog box.
